“Excellent stay with Robin and Sue again.”
Reviewed 28 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This is our 3rd visit to this accommodation and it was just perfect.
Such a quiet place with a perfect views of the hills with the sea not too far away. The room was very clean and well kept daily. We enjoyed the breakfasts by the pool as the weather was so good and no wind either. Will go back again.
Thanks to Robin and Sue

“Perfect peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 18 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We rented this beautiful villa apartment from the 26th June 2017, from the moment we arrived we felt a warm welcome by Sue and Robin as if we were family.
This apartment is the perfect base for exploring beautiful Crete, there are two wonderful Tavernas within walking distance that serve excellent Cretan cuisine.
If you are pretty fit and able there are great hiking opportunities as you can explore this wonderful part of Crete.
Kolymbari is a little drive away and that is where you will find great supermarkets to serve your needs.
If you are feeling lazy and just want to chill out by the pool then this villa is perfect (no fighting for sunbeds)!!
Sue and Robin are always nearby to help with anything, even if you fancy a cooked spit roast chicken!! nothing is too much trouble for these great people.

Thank you Sue and Robin for a great holiday!! x

“piece of paradise”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful week at robin's nest!
The place is clean, and very very quiet. Robin and Susan are very sympathetic and kind hosts.
From the balconys you can have incredible views on sea or moutains.
you have a small beach at about 1 mile

I have no doubt we'll come again!
